Jordan and Andrew
St Louis, Missouri Helsinki, Finland Rovaniemi, Finland Spring Lake, North Carolina Barcelona, Spain
We're going to the national park Thingvellir, the waterfall Gullfoss (golden falls) and the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.
We've got to eat some smoked meat while we're in Iceland. Skyr (Icelandic yogurt) too.
We'll be spending Christmas in Rovaniemi, "The Official Hometown of Santa Claus."
We are staying in the Honeymoon Turf Chamber for three nights. It has its own private sauna. On the fourth night we are staying in a glass igloo that has been built for Northern Lights gazing.
We're going to go ice fishing at Lake Inari. Then we're going to visit the Siida Museum in the Sami Village of Inari.
We are taking a flight from Saariselka back down to Helsinki, where we will spend some time before heading to Barcelona.
We'll need a hotel in Helsinki for a stopover on our way to Barcelona.
We're excited to spend the first week of 2014 with the rest of the Rathus clan in Barcelona!
We'll have to return to our newlywed home-life after this whole thing. Help us get back to New York.
We need a large backpack for Andrew to carry our stuff on trains, planes, and as we trek through all of that snow and ice.
